I don't like that store very much. People working there have way too much attitude and are way too much unfriendly, which is very inappropriate for the clothes they sell. I associate names like Martin Margiela, Dries Van Noten and Junya Watanabe with genuine and warm feeling, not plasticity. I had the same bad impression of their service everytime I was there. I was once interested in getting a Junya Watanabe sweater, but that Philip guy dealt with me in such an unpleasant manner, that I had to give up in the end.

They have another White American sales girl, she is simply ridiculous! Everytime I was there, I came aross her doing or saying something stupid. There was once I saw her helping a middle-aged British lady. I don't know if this girl just wanted to behave classily or whatever else, at the beginning she talked normally and then after maybe 20 or 30 seconds, she started talking in British accent and complimented that lady on her British origin! You guys know how horrible Americans sound like when they try to speak English with impure British accent. I almost got goose pimples on my skin at that time, I had to rush out of their door as soon as possible.

Really? I thought the staff at If were incredibly friendly and easy going. Especially Philip. He was a hoot. I had a great time trying things on with him, talking about designers, and getting some good fashion gossip from him. It was almost like a party. The only other place in the U.S. that is as fun to shop at, in my opinion, is the Ron Herman on Melrose in Los Angeles with the fabulous sales associate Derick who happens to be the best dressed man in America.

Only men's. Check out the Cloak Uncloaked thread in Designers and Collections, I just posted an interview with Alex there in which he touches on that subject.

Come to think of it, I saw a girl once wearing the same Cloak knit cardigan as I have (only in black). It looked good.

I would say definately NoLiTa (maybe that area is a little out of date) and Brooklyn.
